Well visits and Physicals for Your Child

It is important to bring your child in for their yearly physical to ensure they are staying healthy and reaching their fullest potential in school.

Our board-certified physicians and nurse practitioner have a deep understanding of preventative care for children, and will provide your child with the care they need to maintain their health and wellness.

We will provide your child with the necessary care they need through each of their important developmental stages. Our health screenings are useful for a range of activities, including:

  • Daycare physicals*
  • School physicals*
  • Sports physicals*
  • Camp physicals*

*Don't forget to bring your physical form in with you during your child's visit, as well as glasses (if your child wears them).

2-4 months:

We continue to monitor nutrition, growth and development and answer any questions you may have. They also receive their next set of immunizations.

4-9 months:

In addition to monitoring your infant's growth and development and continued age appropriate immunizations, we begin administering standardized developmental screenings and perform a lead screening.

12-15 months:

In addition to monitoring your infant's growth and development, providing the age appropriate vaccines and performing standardized developmental screening tools we also check your infant's hemoglobin to screen for anemia, and perform a tuberculosis screening.

18 months and 2 years:

In addition to monitoring your infant's growth and development, providing the age appropriate vaccines and performing standardized developmental screening tools, we also screen for autism and perform follow-up lead and hemoglobin screenings.

3-years-old:

Our providers will continue to monitor growth and development of your child. At this age we begin screening their vision and hearing, blood pressure and urine to discover problems early.

4-10 years:

We continue to monitor growth and development. We discuss school and peer concerns that may arise in these early school years.

Middle school and adolescent years:

Once your child reaches middle school and adolescents and they begin to enter puberty, their needs and concerns change. Although we still monitor growth and development, we strive to help their transition into adulthood to go as smoothly as possible. We monitor puberty development, we perform scoliosis screenings, depression screenings and drug and alcohol screenings when appropriate. We also check your child's first cholesterol screening as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
